I haven’t written anything about BossPrefs, but now that a new version got released, it’s the perfect time :)

This is one of those app’s everybody should install.
why ?

Cause it gives you almost full control of all service running on your iPhone.
The app Basically gives you switches for all services that you have running on your iPhone.


Following can be activated or deactivated by a

-Airplane mode
-your e-mail accounts
and ton of other plugins you can install like

-AFP control
-Pure FtpD
-Safari DL
-Samba Control

This is an app that truly gives you full control and trust me you need it, if you don’t want that your edge connection cost is really high :)

What’s new in version 1.63? The flight switch.
What’s new in version 1.64? The Phone toggle switch

Let’s install it and have a look at the options

1) You can locate the app in the utilities category of the installer.

2) Let’s run the app. The first screen directly enables you to activate or decativate the services you need (save some precious battery).

3) Let’s press the config button. Here you can chose if you’d like to see some options on the beginning screen or not. You can also add services that you’d like to enable or disable by bosspreffs.

4) Let’s go back to the previous screen and tap the more button. Here are some really nice options.

-Dock icons, this let’s you add any program you like to the inital bosspreffs dock.
-Fix user permissions, (if you used zibri’s ziphone, then you really need to tab on this option!!) It fixes the problems people have with maill app crashing, summerboard themes not working, notes not saving and a lot of other things !
-Disable springboard screenshot (fw 1.1.3 and 1.1.4 have a built in screenshot taker, if you like, you can disable it with this option.)
-Start bosspreffs when you double tap the home button.
-Show free disk space.

That’s about it… any questions? Leave a comment and i’ll get back to you.

This big app is available in the Installer.app through the Sleepers packaging source, see our sources page.
